Perry, Under God? (Cambridge: Cambridge University Press, 2003), p. 99. I am much indebted to chapter 6 – ‘Religion, Politics and Abortion’ – in this relatively recent book. Though, in all fairness it has to be said that the justification for this is based on no more than that the being is human. g.
